Ready for Red


Winter in New Englad is winding down (if you even want to say we had a winter) and that means our coveted coats are going on sale.

Before I jetsetted to NYC, I ran to TJ’s and found this coat that I had been eyeing for a month on clearance! I jumped for joy, while my sister looked at me like I had six heads.

This red Poleci coat with hidden buttons got set up on a date with fur ear muffs, a fur neck wrap, red skinny jeans, and matching red gloves. You may being saying “a bit much with the red”, but at Fashion Week, anything goes. Really. I saw a man in an ankle length, white fur coat.

Don’t I look so toasty warm at the Moncler Grenoble fashion show…on ice!

Lucky for me, red jackets are H-O-T for this fall. Obviously going to be storing this precious garment away for the fall months.

DVF sent this masterpiece down the runway. Notice the hidden buttons

And how about Catherine Malandrino’s take on a red jacket. Also, hidden buttons.

Serious about Silk


When we got the news that we were attending the Marchesa show I nearly fainted. Actually, I’m pretty sure I screamed in the middle of a store I was shopping at (naturally). Ummm Marchesa? Are you kidding me! Lina and I have been dying to attend the Marchesa show since we started attending New York Fashion Week! Not only are the clothes amazing, the most fashionable, elite people attend the show! Some of which include Molly Sims, Rachel Zoe, and Anna Wintour!

Receiving word that the show would be at the Plaza, first I died a little more, then started brainstorming what I would strut down the Red Carpet in…

I decided on a grey, silk and mesh dress with a sweater neckline and a high slit by Poleci…to die for! I dazzled it up with a statement necklace , a beige envelope clutch, and matching beige heels.

How awesome is this neckline?! Can you believe Marchesa sent similar dresses to mine down the runway at the show we attended!!

Marchesa and Donna Karan love this style and fabric for the fall and spring!
